Track near Square Wood
Track near Square Wood
The path shown on the right in NS4177 : Path junction leads here. There is a very visible track here, near the eastern corner of Square Wood. However, in a much less conspicuous form, it continues for several miles over the muirs; in fact, it is a relic of an old road from Dumbarton to Drymen (see LinkExternal link for details; the road is the one that is described there as passing Maryland Farm).

The deep glen of the Black Burn is on the right, parallel to the old road.
Lang Craigs Woodland :: NS4377
The woodland occupies 240 hectares (590 acres) that were acquired by the Woodland Trust Scotland in 2011. It is named after the Lang Craigs, a line of cliffs making up the facade of the Kilpatrick Hills plateau. Lang Craigs Woodland is one of the 13 Commonwealth Woods, and is an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest). New paths have been laid out (waymarkers were added in May 2015), and about 160 hectares of new native woodland planted.
